Three New Jersey stores are among the 88 that electronics and appliance retailer HHGregg has announced it will close as part of its plan to stem losses and boost profits.
The company will lose 1,500 jobs.

In New Jersey, the company is closing stores in Moorestown, the Mays Landing section of Hamilton, and Deptford.

The stores are expected to close before the end of April.
